An excellent event, planned by Laura King with assistance from Lucy Haines, and organised by Lindsey and Rob King.
A note from Laura:
'Thank you to everyone who attended the AIRE score event and picnic on Sunday at Golden Acre Park. This was my first time planning and organising an event so the score style was ideal. Thanks to Tony Thornley for giving me some guidance and printing the maps.'
